Cyber Monday...

Quote for the day:
 I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced 
so they won't think something is wrong with me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking in on me... I know I haven't posted in several days, but trust me, I am still around!
I got a great phone call from my niece, K.B., announcing her engagement!  I so terribly excited for her!  She's had to bide her time for Mr. Right to come along, but her patience has been well rewarded!  :)   Blessings and congratulations, K.B.!  May you live a long, happy life with J!
I actually did some decluttering yesterday, but didn't take a picture of wasn't very exciting!  LOL  I decided to go through the file cabinet and dispose of old records that aren't needed anymore.  I ended up with 2.5 medium-sized garbage bags of shredded documents/records that went out in the trash pick-up this morning.
Thanksgiving was a non-holiday for us this year because it was just Andy & family...which we all know is the ingredient that "makes" Thanksgiving or Christmas.  Andy made a beef roast dinner for us.  I spent the day working on Andrew III's "bug jar" quilt and Andy spent the day doing whatever he does when he has a day off....watching TV, kicking back, know...the strenuous stuff!  LOL
I have the "bug jar" quilt sandwiched...which means that the top, batting and backing fabric are all laid out and basted together with safety pins.  It is ready to be machine quilted.  I'm not a great machine quilter...but so far I've never had anybody give the quilt back to me in disgust!  LOL
When it is quilted, I will post a picture on here so you all can "ohhh & ahhh" over it appropriately!  ;)
Yesterday I had 3 auctions of Pfaltzgraff items end on Ebay and all three got bids and sold!  So today I took the packages to the post office and mailed them out.  I have gotten rid of 90% of the Pfaltzgraff items that I didn't want out of the boxlot of items I purchased.
All told so far, I spent $7.50 on the boxlot of Pfaltzgraff and so far have made $46.69 on the items I have sold from it.  Plus, I have added 8-10 very nice baking dishes to my own collection from the box.  :)   Not enough money to retire on...but still a decent amount for the investment!  :)  
What doesn't sell by the time Ebay starts charging for listing fees for their auctions again, I will just put in the yard sale box and sell next summer on the yard sale.
Thanks for stopping by!  Please leave a comment to let me know what you have "released into the wild" recently!

  1. How can you title a post Cyber Monday and not have a list of deals you found! LOL

    Anyways I'm excited and can't wait to see the pics of the quilt! And congrats on the money made on the Pfaltzgraff items, that is awesome!
